What brings maturity and wisdom… surviving and embracing it all.

Uncharted – a poem

Uncharted

Yielding to complacency … the end no longer defined.

Having spied the horizon …  as though pulled from the mind’s eye.

Make the best of the moment … traveling a future’s path now unlined.

My heart’s desire fades across time and space, racing the waves.

Yet, no matter the path traveled, my passion remains full and bright.

But should desire be fuel for the attainable or the denied?
